Diana Extended: The Remixes is a remix album released by American soul singer Diana Ross in 1994. The album includes six tracks that were reworked by some of the biggest names in the industry at the time, covering Ross' career as a solo artist and as a member of The Supremes, with Frankie Knuckles updating "Someday We'll Be Together" from 1969. The album also contains a remix of "Chain Reaction", originally released during Ross' time at RCA. The seventh track is "You're Gonna Love It", a track from the album The Force Behind the Power. The version on Diana Extended: The Remixes is a short remix available previously on a 12" single.

The album was only moderately successful on both sides of the Atlantic, reaching #58 on the UK Albums Chart and #68 on the US Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, while missing the Billboard Top 200 entirely. "Someday We'll Be Together" was released as a single and peaked at #7 on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play charts (April 1994). The album ultimately sold around 80,000 copies in the US.[2]

The US version of the album was released on Motown, and European/Japanese versions on EMI. Track listings were the same, but special editions were also issued. Many remixes, including those by Joey Negro, weren't included on the album but instead only on the many singles released for the club market.
